I finally got the sucker, but I have no clue how I got two of 'em. I
noticed that Croquet was flickering HUGELY and I knew it tasked the hell
out of the gpu and that my nVidia driver had to be screwed. Then I found
this going on. Now I'm gonna install it again. It might have gotten
installed by some secret yum miracle when my kernel was updated, but it
still shouldn't have been installed twice by anything. I was and still
remain clueless. Ric
I wonder Seth's dupes-cli.py would find and manage to remove the duplicate ?

I have had used this on various machines to find an remove duped packages. The situation that caused the duplicates seems to be an rpm uninstall script that failed / rpm stuck and nuked. This left packages mostly removed from disk but not from the rpm database, from what I understand.

You may be able to work out when things went wrong by perusing the /var/log/yum*.logs
